Vital Records of Bergen New Jersey
Posted By Dennis Partridge On In Featured,New Jersey,Vital Records | No Comments
Bergen was the location of the first permanent European settlement in the present state of New Jersey. Prior attempts at settlement in locations such as Pavonia, Vriessendael and Achter Col in prior decades all failed due to New Netherland and Lenape Tribe’s incessant warfare with the early settlers in all three locations. It is considered an “historical town” as during its 200 year history its municipal mass slowly eroded until 1862 when the township was dissolved.
The records provided in this collection come from two annual editions of the “Year Book of the Holland Society of New York.” They represent the baptisms from 1666-1692 and marriages from 1665-1788. For the most part the names are Dutch in heredity.
